Justices to question whether term 'police officer' encompasses reserve police officers

Does failure to comply with the command of a reserve police officer fall within the scope of the statute MCL 750.81d is one of the issues before the Michigan Supreme Court during oral arguments on Wednesday, May 4. Court will convene at 9:30 a.m.

Other issues include a worker’s compensation action, whether injuries suffered in an apartment fire are covered under a Total Pollution Exclusion Endorsement, and a breach of
